June 29, 2020

A FATHER and son were shot and killed inside their home by two armed men who were looking for the son-in-law of the elder victim Sunday evening in Caloocan city.

Juanito Labarigo, 65, and his 26-year-old son Jericho were already sleeping inside their house in Jasmin St., Bicol Area Libis, Bgy. 175 Camarin  at around 11 p.m. when two armed men forcibly barged inside and asked the whereabouts of a certain “Baet”.

One of the suspects dragged Jericho out of his room, prompting his mother Ligaya, 53 to intercede and tried to tell the gunmen that her son-in-law they were looking for was not in their house and begged to let go his son,

However, Ligaya’s plea for mercy fell on deaf ears when one of the gunmen shot Jericho repeatedly in the body, killing him instantly, before aiming his gun at Juanito who was in another room.

Juanito tried to escape but he too was shot repeatedly by the suspects in front of five minor children, before they both fled towards unknown direction.

Ligaya admitted to the police that Bait’s involvement in illegal drugs was the reason why the killers were after him.
